How a DNF Changed my Life: a Perspective on World’s Toughest Mudder

By |November 13th, 2018|

This is a post towards anyone who went through the brutal 24-hour obstacle course race that was World’s Toughest Mudder (WTM) 2018 in Atlanta Georgia, where we had sub-freezing temperatures and layers of ice on obstacles left and right. However, I think it’s generalizable to many other difficult challenges.

Potty Talk #2 for UltraOCR and Ultrarunning

By |May 1st, 2018|

Let us engage in some high-class potty talk for how to deal with the almost inevitable issue that will be encountered during events that are 12+ hours long: when to poop? Whenever you tell someone you run these endurance events, after the first question of “how” or “why” some of your more brazen friends might inquire about this basic human function.

Training Tuesday – Endurance training: Maximizing your Night Running

By |March 20th, 2018|

If you’re new to the world of ultrarunning and endurance racing, there’s something big and important that you might not think too much about, until you find yourself on a single-track trail with a dim headlamp stumbling over loose rocks and fearing for the health of your ankles: running at night is hard.

Ultra Race Recap: Dr. Redtights Takes on SB100

By |July 15th, 2016|

The SB100 was a rough introduction to the world of ultra running. My facetious but true statement when people would ask me if I had run a 100 before was, "I have never run a race without obstacles more than 13.1 miles." Of course, I decided to change that by running one of the hardest 100 milers in Southern California. Here's how it went (spoiler, the kitty was a lie):

Run a Relay – Linking People & Places Forever

By |May 31st, 2016|

Running became a passion of mine "later" in life, I didn't run my first mile until I was in my early 30's, my first 5k in 2002 or so. Over the years I've fallen in love with running dozens of different times in various forms; trails, roads, obstacle course races, ultras, stage races, cross-country relays, etc. I've even fallen prey to the running demons that often plague us all; overuse, injury, self-doubt, DNF's, failures in all shapes and sizes. I've cared way too much about certain runs that didn't matter and dismissed some very valuable ones as unimportant; A races that I'd spent months training for became B or C races on a whim, while I turned simple training sessions into do-or-die battles with running partners.

Adam Kimble Run Across USA: Days 44 – 58

By |April 13th, 2016|

It’s crazy that these friends all met racing in the Gobi Desert in China and so many have traveled far distances from across the US to take Adam’s side for long miles together. His Gobi buds have become official trail angels. Adam completed 43 miles today with Mark's support totaling 2,323.2 with only 144 to go! The Atlantic is within reach, but we are realizing it won’t be an easy-breezing ending.

Adam Kimble Run Across USA: Day 33 – 43

By |March 30th, 2016|

Adam still progressed by getting in 29 miles from 5 am to 8:30 pm. He was experiencing a lot of pain in his right shin and right hip. He’s amazing to persevere through all of the pain. Progress is progress! One of the best parts of the day was having two puppies follow Adam for 3 miles and keep him company. The crew would have loved to keep the pups as our trans-con mascots, but we reunited the puppies with their family. Onto Day 44 in Louisiana!

Adam Kimble’s Run Across USA: Days 29-32

By |March 18th, 2016|

There’s a new vision to this mission and you could tell today. Adam was in high spirits as a man with a new plan and new goals. Team morale is high, too. We continually try to be creative at pit stops. Today, we turned to the game two truths and a lie to stump each other. We’ve gotten to know each other pretty well being together 24/7. Adam dominated 50 miles for the third day in a row and has 1,212 to go! Starting to visualize the Atlantic Ocean from Texas! Onto Day 33!
